This Rare Tea Cellar Exclusive is a truly magnificent honey. From the artistry of Mieli Thun quintessence is the story of the flowering zenith, when honey reaches its maximum possible integrity. There is a magical moment when the flower is more generous in nectar, more intense in aroma and taste.

The Acacia Quintessenza has the scent of acacia and white spring flowers with hints of sugared almonds and bourbon vanilla.  The mouth-feel is sweet and silky and its aftertaste confirms all the etherealness of the olfactory sensations, revealing a fresh note of sweet almond.

By far the richest in fructose,  the sweetest and most hygroscopic among honeys.

Useful for candying fruit and vegetables, sweetening and limiting oxidation in fruit salads, wonderful for polishing pies and fruit cakes in general. Add to a tomato sauce to enhances the flavor and regulates acidity.

Pairs beautifully with goat cheese, pecorino, and blue cheese.
